I was looking to improve the sound of my GoldTone BG-250. I tried a Sosebee and several other bridges, but all sounded about the same and very tight/restricted to my ear. I tried the Sampson and was impressed with how it opened up the sound, the resonance and sustain sound is more in tune with the notes played and compliment the song. Did not seem to "mute" the ring, just focused it more to the appropriate frequencies. Now I have to try one on my openback.

Samson makes an awesome bridge. I put one on my Mike Ramsey Bacon Model open-back and the result was astounding! The sound was so dramatically improved that even my wife noticed (and she doesn't even like banjo music!). I immediately ordered another one for my Bob Flesher Grand Cotillion with similar results. Highly recommended!!
